I have to interrupt this quilting blog for a brief announcement:
My books arrived!!!
One of my favorite authors, Joshilyn Jackson (pronounced “Joss”ilyn), has a new book available in hardback. The title is Backseat Saints, and it’s her fourth novel. I checked out the first three from the library, and when the new one came out I took the opportunity to purchase the others as well. How big a goony-fan am I? Well, Mom and I are road-tripping on Thursday so we can meet her at a reading and book signing at Next Chapter Bookshop in Mequon, WI. Yes, I am a bigdumbdork, but I’m looking forward to it so much that I don’t even care how silly I sound. Of course, since I took the day off work, we’re going to make a day of it and maybe hit a few quilt shops on the way.
Any readers out there? I strongly recommend you jump right on the Backseat Saints bandwagon. She’s even made the New York Times bestsellers list! You can read her blog at Faster Than Kudzu. Don’t forget her first three books, gods in Alabama, Between, Georgia, and The Girl Who Stopped Swimming.
